How did I select these as the best tablet deals?

As a deals' guru, I've been scouring retailers websites for years now, taking into account price, specs, features, and more. Most of the time, one of my criteria is that the product has to be at least 15 per cent off - anything less and it's not a great deal, though there are some exceptions like Apple products and new launch bundles. Additionally, I also go back in time, checking price histories through various chrome extensions like CamelCamelCamel and Honey. If a price jumped up and then went back down to a "sale" price, I'm keeping an eye out for that, too.
